The 4th Annual Northwest. Pen Round-Up! (Saturday July 16th ~ Portland, Oregon)

Just passing along some information about this fun (and free!) annual summer pen event held in Portland, Oregon sent to me yesterday by co-organizer Stuart Hawkinson...

Stuart writes:
"The 4th Annual Northwest Pen Round-Up! will be held on Saturday July 16th, 2016, at the Lucky Labrador Brewing Co., 1945 N.W. Quimby Street, Portland Oregon from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Table setup will start about 10:00-10:30 Saturday morning. Show tables are smaller size than normal, but we try to be flexible. Tables are $20ea payable on the day of the show. We will have room for about 20 tables.

It is the same weekend as the largest antique show in the Northwest, the Christine Palmer Antique Show (show's official website here).

All pen collectors and users are invited, wherever you are. We do not limit this event to just people from the Northwest or the West Coast.

General admission is free.

Please contact Stuart Hawkinson or Michael McNeil for more information
